From the Facebook event page: “It’s the final Pints for a Purpose of the 2016/2017 season! It’s been an amazing year of giving and we are so happy to end things off with a bang, supporting Modern Roots Foundation. Modern Roots Foundation works to “give kids a chance to play music, create sounds, and express themselves regardless of their economic status.” They provide kids with access to music lessons, instrument rentals and workshops. From 5-10pm, Standing Stone will donate $2 from every pint of beer and $1 from every root beer to Modern Roots Foundation. The MRF team will be on-site and sharing the good work they’re doing in our community.” Definitely stop by Standing Stone tonight if you’re in the area!
